Attacks Continue in Pauktaw town and update news of survivor boat people


Source NDPHR(exile),
There are one side mass attacks of onslaught and torching houses have been going on in all over Arakan state but the government just eloquently responding to international. From the beginning of violence, the government authorities did not install Law and Order for Rakhine people therefore the Rakhine people plus monks are openly and vigilantly terrorizing against the Arakanese muslims.

UN has yet to learn a new chapter about the regime government that had quietened the 65 millions people in the past five decades pretends to be uncontrollable and directly contributing the attacks in materialization of the burmanization and buddization in the support of Rakhine people’ desires of extermination of the Rohingya in regard to install its own independent state. So, all Arakanse muslims have been targeted for their agendas and facing the worst genocidal attacks in the history. Sadly, it is very regrettable that the world mechanism body UN has not yet paved a workable solution to end the crises, as well as, it has forwarded such matters of ethnic cleansing onto the terror government.
Beside, we are also surprised with many reports still express as ‘clashes’ and do not clearly state about ‘who attack whom in whose villages’.


Pauktaw town

28 Oct, 18:00: Rakhines plus monks attack the Rohingya village Shikka Rwa (Sandawma @Sandawshin side), Pauktaw town. The Rakhines 2,000 came around 17:00 once but drove away by the villagers but soon they back with monks and attack with guns, arrows and torching the houses by using fire-throwers. Detail is not yet escalated because the houses are still burning and the blazes can be seen from Sittwe port.
The Rakhine people tried to attack this village from the evening of 26 Oct but the government authority didn’t take any action.

Sittwe town update news of survivor boat people
Yesterday evening on 27 Oct, about 53 boats total landed in Ongdaw (Bariza fara @ Coconut filed) mostly from Kyaukpyu town since 25 Oct, were freed to refuge in Sittwe refugee camps after negotiation was approached by the aid staffs of UN and Turkey. However, the rest 12 boats load of about 2,000 displaced Rohingyas landed on the shore of Taechaung from Ward-3 and Ward-4 of Pauktaw town from 23 Oct, are still surrounded by the Nasaka forces and facing starvation and various abuses.

These survivor boatpeople who have been now freed into refugee camps say that the Nasaka forces extorted and looted cash what they had about 30 Lakhs from Kyaukpyu people and about 20 Lakhs from Pauktaw people, and looted their jeweleries in exchange to allow to land and refuge in Sittwe refugee camps. Some of them were also beaten up for saying about ‘Rakhines burnt down their houses’.

The number of total boats landed in Maungdaw town is 20 boats and all of them were brought separately into the land by yesterday but about where they would be relocate is unknown yet.

Myanmar Refugees: Babies are Dying Aboard Boats that Can’t Come Ashore


Source Salam news, 27 Oct

It doesn’t have to be this way… people in this world are calling for justice.

Rohingya refugee

Despair underscores the entire Rohingya refugee movement.

(SACRAMENTO, CA) – In spite of fragmented efforts by the Burmese government to quell violence stemming from religious unrest, a long, systematic series of attacks from the Rakhine Buddhists against Rohingya Muslims continue, as these ‘stateless people’ recoil under the most brutal conditions.

Those who remain in their villages are being raped and murdered; the favored weapon of the Buddhist mobs certainly is fire.

However as we have shown in different photos over the last several weeks, they absolutely pack machetes and other types of swords and other weapons.

In the mix of Rohingya attackers are, intermittently, police and military forces who carry various types of guns. They are accused of widespread rape and murder.

While Buddhists have been killed; some while participating in mob activities and others by government forces who opened fire on crowds of angry demonstrators this week, nearly all of the victims of mob violence have been Muslim.

Experts say the Rakhines’ efforts to eliminate this ethnic group are in this case, not not just ethnic cleansing, but Genocide – Bosnia style.

Within the international criminal courts, this is a much larger allegation with much harsher sentences for those who are convicted.

With tens of thousands of Rohingya creating a Diaspora of refugees, many have taken to boats and as we reported yesterday, neither Bangladesh or Burma / Myanmar will allow them to reach land and if they do ultimately go to Burma, military forces await them along with a terrible fate.

The U.S. media needs to begin covering this action and not leave it all to the Asian and European agencies that are carrying many reports that never see the light of day in the United States. Efforts to reach the mainstream population need to be accelerated.

As I cite in nearly all of these reports, the international community is moving very slowly in their effort to assist these refugees. They are in boats without supplies andthey are dying, the babies are dying, and no agencies are able to help.

Recent funds allotted for the Rohingya, it was reported in an interview this week by Human Rights Physician Nora Rawley, is not reaching the Rohingya people at all. It is all being intercepted by other interests in this Buddhist majority country.

The Rohingya had their status as legal residents removed in the 1980’s by a murderous military junta, when it was considered a pariah state.

The U.S. government recently lifted sanctions against Myanmar’s president without requiring the country to recognize the existence of its own citizens.

The Rohingya incidentally, are only one Muslim group in Burma, however all Muslims are under potential attack in recent weeks.

According to my best contact in Sittwe, Burma, one village after another continues to go up in smoke.

As the photos attest, the degree of misery is off the charts and it is taking place while U.S. media concentrates on a political election.

Regarding the victims doomed to possibly live out their last days in sight of land that they are restricted from landing on, my contact stated:

Nurul Islam, a human rights activist and writer in Bangladesh, reports about the Rohingya crisis frequently for Salem-News.com.

It has become abundantly clear that the president of this rogue nation in the U.S. trade spotlight, which has minerals used in the creation of ‘dirty’ warfare, has no control over the forces he commands.

My friend says nearly 400 victims are on hunger strike because they were forced by NaSAka (Burma’s border security force) to follow them go Maungdaw.

Everything taking place with regard to the plight of the Rohingya population is unethical at best. In reality what is taking place is a series of mass murders.

The president of this trouble ridden and corrupt nation needs to stand up for the welfare of his own people regardless of their religion and so far he is barely doing this.

War crimes and crimes against humanity are being carried out every day and all of these murderous acts are direct violations of international law under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

These are just some of the latest images to arrive in our newsroom today, please make this tragedy known; talk about it at work and call your local TV stations and newspapers and ask why they aren’t doing something to educate people before it is too late.

I am listing the stories I have written on this ethnic cleansing period in Burma that began in July. You can use our ‘Myanmar’ or ‘Burma’ tag below to take you to hundreds of stories beyond those I have personally written. Salem-News.com has become a virtual magnet for the advocates and reporters who are also following this story, most of whom are in Europe and Asia, which is why your help is needed.

Government forces opened fire on mobs of Buddhist protestors within the last 24-hours, killing several. This has to stop immediately and should have never happened.

This, following a systematic genocide of Rohingya homes and villages and unforgivable mob violence and murder. People are being tortured to death as we have reported, and this is all happening at the hands of the Myanmar government.
